Catchall -- something that holds or includes odds and ends or a wide variety of things.

That is the OP -- any conspiracy is on-topic so the dreaded Thread Nazis can't stormtrooper naturally progressing conversations because they deviate from the rigid established order of post #1.

So, let's all have one giant conspiracy conversation.

Let's try this again, shall we?

yeh we can have lizards to kennedy to 911 all in the same thread.

That imnsho is a ridiculous thread.

Had you narrowed it down to say anything related to 911, or kennedy that would at least be sensible. The above is not.

Yeah, but I was laughing at you, not with you.
Thats really all people can do when they insist on standing their ground after being proven wrong.

I will take that as a compliment.

We can't always get what we want.

An open-ended OP encourages wide and more fluid conversation without the, "You're off-topic," nonsense that arises...ironically on 1) an Internet message board & 2) the conspiracy section.

I recognize the problem, however its paramount to being the same as the board section 'conspiracy theories'.

There is such a thing as too open ended.

Why not start a thread and call it lets talk about anything and everything.
